Support Group

This support group gives recently diagnosed breast cancer patients the opportunity to meet other women who are sharing similar experiences. Please join us as we come together to discuss managing emotions and stress, nutrition, exercise, and many other topics that can help those touched by breast cancer.

The group’s moderators teach relaxation and coping techniques, as well as guided imagery and meditation.We share personal testimonials and invite guest speakers to present on a variety of subjects. Participants are encouraged to give suggestions for future topics and speakers.
